Fan of Kishidan, traditional school gang style

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

masamania
This is fanatic fan of Kishidan. Kishidan is rock music group. Kisidan’s style is based on the Japanese traditional school gang. all these costume is customised from school uniform. this point is very interesting. because Japanese school gang is always rebel the school. but they wear school uniform as a member of school. Yes, Japanese school gangs chose to go to school although they rebel school. In this dilemma, to show their rebel mind, they customise their uniform. I dont know they are really against school or obeying school. anyway, they are so of Yakuza (Japanese mafia). you should be careful.

  1. these guys are so dasai it’s not funny.

  2. so what do they actually do? rock up to the park and then sit around while people take their photographs? Maybe I’m missing something but this looks like a crappy way to spend your weekend.

  3. hey, masa – I’ve got a question: what does the hand-pose made by the girls in the last picture mean? Is it the new ‘peace’ sign, or are they just big fans of spock from Star Trek? Also, how the hell do you do it?! I’ve been trying for like 5 minutes and It’s frickin’ immpossible! Keep up the true journalism!!
    ============from MasaManiA
    That sign is done by Kishidan. Kishidan’s favorite pose.

  4. Kakoii
    They’re cool. I like the idea of rebelling against something by using it. Like; they rebell against school by using the schooluniform but in a different way. They’re cool, even though they’re just fans of kishidan, still…
    what’s written on their backs? They seem to have written something on the back of their uniforms.
    ===========from MasaManiA
    THe writing is easy to translate but difficult to explain. anyway they write very humorous thing.

  5. Their haircuts are very funny, remind me of the band Leningrad Cowboys.

  6. yeah. only confirmity to the majority is cool.

  7. it is strange for me to see so many people “squatting”
    one time an asian family (I dont know if they were japanese), but they were all “squatting” in the middle of a busy sidewalk, just eating and talking to each other, while everyone was walking around them, (most people looked at them like they were really strange for “squatting” like this)
    the people where I live will find a chair to sit on or a wall to lean against if they are tired, or they will sit all the way down on their ass, out of the way of other people
    I tried to squat like this before, but it is very uncomfortable to me, because I am not used to it, and it hurts my knees after a few minutes
    why do japanese people squat like this?
    ==========from MasaManiA
    Only artist do it.

  8. Oh, is this a revival of Kishidan-style? It’s been out for a while hasn’t it?

  9. Awesome pics as always, Masa! Is that style the same as “Angura kei?” The colors and uniforms remind me of Inugami Circus-dan.
    Also, do you know the name for the mask in kishidan20.jpg? I’ve seen identical ones a few times now…
    Thanks!
    ===========From MasaManiA
    You are so maniac that you know “Inugami Circus-dan”.
    Sorry for my bad explain. Kishidan and Inugami Circus-dan imitate the style of traditional japanese school gangs.
    And i dont know the name of mask

  10. those last 2 are very hot..did you get their phonenumbers?
    ========from MasaManiA
    I am not Frenchman

  11. I am a kishidan fan. My attempt to cosplay as one of the members was awful compared to these cosplayers.
    ========From MasaManiA
    It’s good

  12. I can only imagine what would happen if it suddenly became “cool” to listen for, develop and follow one’s own creativity (inner voice), instead of copying styles from animated genres.

  13. These ‘brown-hair gangs’ are a little more colorful than the REAL brown-hair gangs, I would expect… The Yakuza have been encouraging their people to blend in with the usual Japanese Salarymen, lately. Why would the pre-Yakuza school kids want to stick out so much?
    BTW, the Elvis hairdos look horrible. Even the guy in picture #41 cut his mohawk too wide and too short to look good. #40’s hair wasn’t too bad, though. What happened to the old ‘punch-perm’ that used to be so popular? For those who don’t know about the punch-perm, watch ‘Cowboy Bebop’ (anime) and look at Spike’s hair.
    =========from MasaManiA
    Yes

  14. Nice pictures!!
    Have you ever heard of gaijins beeing friend with those people? Or would you suggest I don’t try to get in touch with them?
    I must admit that this blue guys with the knifes…well.. one’s knife has a camera at the end of the chain…Looks like a cosplay more than a true badboys meeting..
    =========from MasaManiA
    You can meet them at the Kishidan’s concert.

  15. Only in Japan would a person rebel by conforming.
    Bouffant hairstyles look really retarded on Japanese people.
    The chick with the black mask is cool. Is this the style for sick Kishidan-jin?
    ========From MasaManiA
    sorry but I dont know

  16. I’m not Japanese, so I won’t claim to be any good at this, but it looks like the characters that you see over and over again on their jackets mean that they are a very determined and strong willed gang of ne’er-do-wellers. They have lots of spirit, but they devote that spirit to doing worthless things.
    =======from MasaManiA
    THey devote spirit to doing worthless things, this is the reason they are COOL (it’s my opinion)

  17. Yes, is favorite because I master baby. Kisidan for rife. Masa, can you master baby?
    ==========from MasaManiA
    Sorry but I dont know what it means.

  18. it kind of reminds me of mexican cholos and their zoot suits

  19. Funny! Where was was this? Yoyogi Park?
    =====From MasaManiA
    Near Yoyogi park

  20. they frighten me…they frighten me very much…
    their clothes frighten me… the words on their clothes frighten me…
    the girls who look like boys frighten me … the boys who look like girls scare me sh*tless…
    their gangland handsign frightens me … ‘shudder’…
    the boys and girls with the buffalo-mane hairdo frighten me….
    i am scared…. very scared… too scared to visit there … no… wait… nevermind… it’s all just a joke…
    now i get it…
    =======from MasaManiA
    Yes, it must be Japanese joke.

  21. what i want to know is do these people change out of these costumes before they get on the train and go home?
    =========from MasaManiA
    Some do, some dont

  22. so would would this style of fashion and tokyos two tuffest school-boys Yusuke and Kuwabara from YuYu Hakusho be one in the same?
    =========from MasaManiA
    Yes

  23. wow. dasee~~~!!
    they look like the punks from yu yu and GTO. the only good picture is the last one.. if their hair was down…
    small kishidan vs western gangs.. hmm

  24. I have really enjoyed your site of the past couple of years, this is my first time posting a comment.
    Did you photoshop the very first picture?
    that’s all I have for now, and keep the great journalism coming.
    ==========from MasaManiA
    THank you for your comming always. and yes i use photoshop for almost all pictures.

  25. I’m sorry. I don’t understand can you master baby meaning too. It is from famous song One Night Carnival. It is interesting English, but doesn’t make sense. Although sounds like like can you masturbate. Yes, I can. Maybe that is meaning. And still master baby. So Yakuza must be skilled masturbater with 4 finger. Maybe try listening to One Night Carnival, you will hear it.
    ========from MasaManiA
    THank you for your information.
    I should study of Kishidan more.

  26. How old is Kishidan?
    Early 90’s?
    Because the guy in your photo, Kishidan52.jpg, looks like M.C. Hammer.
    =======from MasaManiA
    MC Hammer must imitate Japanese traditional shcool gang style.

  27. Interesting costumes. Japanese are so extreme, they are really conformist, and yet they do bizarre things to stand out. For example, I recently saw some “Hanami” season photos made by one Japanese exhibitionist lady. I am surprised she did not get arrested. Her site is pink-love.net or something like that. There seems to be a network of these Japanese exhibitionist ladies, why not do a photo shoot on them one day?

  28. Those look like some badass bitches in those pics.

  29. I have always seen these in manga but never seen actual photos of cosplayers.
    Masa, thank you for the pictures.
    =========from MasaManiA
    yes

  30. Yakuza:
    I always have a little chuckle when I hear people mention The Yakuza,As if they are a fearsome gang.
    They dont seem fearsome or imtimadating,Unless you find, walking as though you ve shat yourself as intimadating.Or if you find growling or pulling scary faces worrying.
    The Japanese Yakuza would get wiped out instantly if they went to any other country and started pushing people around.

  31. ah, an inugami fan! *up there somewhere!*
    on inugami’s last album they are all dressed up like a schoolgirl gang — cause the album is called sukeban rock — eheh, they’re so amusing! gotta love them! 😀

  32. M. C. Hammer went out of style when I was a kid…
    To PW,
    The Yakuza seem to do just as well for themselves in places like Korea and even small areas in the US as they do in Japan. They don’t just make faces, they actually do more than the Italian mafia did when they still were the biggest crime syndicate in the US.
    Pied,
    Some Yakuza are not Japanese at all-it just depends on which Yakuza ‘family’.

  33. Wow, the gils in the last pic are totally adorable. Except the boots on the one in blue, that’s a no no.
    Take more pictures of them if you see them again, Masa!

  34. It is nice to see gang styles from another country, even if cosplayed. I’ve been around gangs from the philipines and various regional gangs here in the states. I notice though that american gangs, the ones that were real gangs not products of MTV or a really good rap CD, aren’t as colorful and are very violent. Was this type of japanese school gang violent when it was popular?
    ==========from MasaManiA
    Of course they are violent. i think it’s the meaning of gang.

  35. sick. i like the last pic…word son!
    bay area mawbsters~!

  36. Could this be a sign of a Bosozoku revival? I’m not familiar with Kishidan, but looking at these folks reminds me of Yokohama Ginbae…
    So are these folks just dressing up, or are they really into the whole Yankee / Bosozoku thing? These folks look a lot more festive than the folks who appear in “Champ Road” magazine for example.
    ===========from MasaManiA
    You cannot always categorize culture. or their category is Kishidan. they certainly mix with Yankee and Bosozoku. But they are already category itself.

  37. most of their fathers are/were alcoholics.

  38. masa, you are my hero.
    ========from MasaManiA
    THank you

  39. This fucking yellow faces suck aaAaaArGgG!!
    Somebody should smash this bloody yellow clowns!
    Hanging in the lane way, waiting for the scum SMASH THEIR YELLOW FACES, kick their fucking bum
    When they plee for mercy, we will show none Skinhead, skinhead, ’til the job is done!!
    Oi!Oi!oi!

  40. Menuda panda de mamones aburridos!!! Putos horteras de bolera

  41. ESTOS JAPOS ESTAN COMO UNA CABRA

  42. Could this be a dastardly result of birth defects caused by radiation lingering from the two bombs used to end World War II? Oh, what has man wrought? Thank you Masa for bringing this degradation to the attention of the masses. Let us pray for a cure.

  43. hahaha… some dudes looks like the monks and the priests from the “ragnarok online” game…
    ut i must recognize that the girl with the ninja mask looks pretty cool!!! i want a mask too!!
    but, seriously, if that are the school bullies… i must say that i’m not afraid at all, even i would be a better bully

  44. menudos kolgaos les mola mazo disfrazarse y koncentrarse para hazer el kanelo……..

  45. ESTOY CONTIGO, ESTOS JAPOS ESTAN COMO UNA CABRA !

  52. Gang styles??
    What kind of GAY fuckin shit is this? No ‘violent’ gangsta has hair like he’s from Flock of Seagulls you -dummies-. They’re more GAYng styles than anything else.
    “It is nice to see gang styles from another country, even if cosplayed. I’ve been around gangs from the philipines and various regional gangs here in the states..” blah blah blah
    “==========from MasaManiA
    Of course they are violent. i think it’s the meaning of gang.”
    MasaManiA you probably got that GAYNG sign down just right.. Its kindof a spock grip meets ‘Hang-Loose’ isn’t it?
    ==========from MasaManiA
    You will be punched by these gang.

  60. Estos pavos son como extraterrestres. Estan en otro mundo. Ya no saben que cono imitar para no tener que afrontar sus asfixiante sistema social.
    Putos piraos.

  61. Yo me la parto!xDD

  62. Bueno, es que es una “convencion” en Japon, del Kishidan, es como las reuniones aqui para comer constillas en el pueblo de los abuelos. Esa gente va “disfrazada” solo. Por las calles no van asi, normalmente. Es como un salon del comic, pero en Japon, se hacen de mas y diferentes cosas que aqui en Espana.
    Mezclar esto con su sistema social, es un error.
    Una cosa es su sistema socio-econimico y la otra son los festivales de Kishidan o de lo que quieran que hagan.
    Putos aculturizados. Lo que os muestran de Japon son las cosas mas “extravagantes” segun el juicio made in spain, pero alli hay festivales, salones y convenciones de muchas mas cosas. Os recuerdo que Espana es un pais tercermundista comparado con Japon, y que los espanoles sois salvajes que os dedicais a asesinar toros, y cosas por el estilo. Sinceramente no se quien es peor. Mentira, si lo se, y desde luego, no es Japon.

  63. hey are very cool the people follow or make than the things like kishidan is good is mean is something th epeople can do for enjoy lol.

    And some of you guys really need to shut the hell up. More than half of the entire crime incidents used to be caused by these kind of gangs where talking about stuff like Rape ‘n manslaughter here..there number’s used to be in the Thousands..ofcourse this was all round the 60’s and 70’s ..lately it’s not much more than 10 a gang or something :/

  70. Totalmente deacuerdo con Akuma, en Espana somos unos tercermundistas donde la fiesta nacional es matar a un animal, que salvajada, soy espanol pero esas cosas hacen que me arrepienta de serlo.
    Y con el tema Japo tambien totalmente deacuerdo, nos muestran lo que quieren, cuando Japon es uno de los paises mas adelantados del mundo y pionero en muchisimas cosas.
    Un saludo a todos.
    QUE QUITEN LOS TOROS DE UNA VEZ YA.

  71. JAJAJA, Las fotos cojonudas si es q los japos q son raritos de cojones pero anda q los comentarios de los espanoles, si es q entre la chufla q tenemos y lo catetorros q somos se ha ido a juntar el hambre con las ganas de comer

  72. Nice Pics,
    I´ll make a littel revival for those Spanish pig´s that only know how to laught at other cultures, sorry but it´ll be in spanish.
    Bueno la verdada es que no se de que pino os habreis caido ti@s, pero la verdad es que reirse de la gente que se lo pasa bien reviviendo la historia, mas o menos turbuelnta que puedan llegar a tener no me parece nada inteligente por vuestra parte, y mas aun proveniendo de una cultura en la que el culto a la tauromaquia y a los trages de sevillanas se ha vuelto en una sena de identidad durante el Franquismo. Bonito no???
    Un poquito de autoconocimiento no vendria mal, por cierto ojala pudiesemos ver las fotos de los carnavales de esos que tanto se rien a ver que pensaban los japos de ellas.
    Sin mas, Un saludo para gente que no se descojona de la cultura de los demas.
    Masa thanks for giving us the chance to see those pics, and entering for a littel space of time in the Japanese culture.
    Just another littel thing, I WANNA SEE MORE PICS OF THOSE LAST TWO BEAUTIFUL GIRLS!!!!
    SEE YA

  75. oh my … at my occidental eyes that looks so… 80’s aborted , wuaagh , watta hair!! hope kishidan has a more fair music than their look -hehehe- well when so dispare cultures mixed the result looks more freaky and weird than cool
    sorry get to go to bathroom to laugh out loud 😀

  76. Me quedo con la ultima foto. Las 2 pa mi… YUMMY!
    Los japos sois unos pringaos. El que entienda espanol ya es seguro que se dio cuenta de que no sabeis vivir, que os comen el coco, que solo hay que ver el arte que sale de vuestro pais, pelis y comics y anime sobre todo, para darse cuenta de que vuestra “occidentalizacion” toma tan solo los peores aspectos de la cultura yanki (Igual que la nuestra…).

  80. Tranquilos todos. Los espanoles hemos estado aislados del mundo mundial durante 2 siglos y no solo eso, sino que los dirigentes no han hecho mas que decirle al pueblo que debia pensar y hacer.
    Es normal el paletismo y la simplicidad del espanol medio. La espanola es quizas de las culturas (y no hablo de museos)s retrasadas, infantiles y pobres del mundo occidental y no occidental.
    Cambiara. Y si no, peor para nosotros. En vez de autocastigarnos, debemos cambiar y ampliar miras y olvidarnos de dogmas impuestos que son ridiculos.
    Yo lo intento y no me va mal.
    AH! Y los japos, como una chota oiga.

  81. Pero q cojones acen con las manos q el dedo menike lo tienen separao O_o

  82. Vaya lo que hay que leer, tan stupid es creer que los japos solo saben hacer paridas, como que lo unico que hay en Espana son toreros. Aprovechar tanta cosa que sale de yonkis.com para conocer el resto del mundo, pero a ver si investigais un poco mas en vuestro barrio.
    Hay que saber separar el grano de la paja.

  83. oh, man, japanese people are really weird.. sometimes i think about the future of this crazy country..

  84. a los japos les jiede la boka a semen de pako porras…
    japos cabrones dejar los tripys cabrones.

    illO _los japos son mas feos que un frigorifico por detras…Son mas feos que cuatro, Ucha uno con toa la cara del pie de truman
    …sus familias deben estar rotas
    home’s traduction for these people: xD
    men _japos are uglier than a back’s refrigerator… They´r uglier than four, look this one with all the face of truman´s foot
    …their families must be broken
    O_o

  86. Si esto es Japon…me apunto! Que pais tan libre! Si te vistes asi en Espana lo mejor que te puede ocurrir es que te peguen por la calle.
    Estupendo el nivel de libertad y desenfado de este pueblo.

  87. !Jolines! The Spanish want to conquer Japan.

  88. Manga de pelotudos, se ponen a criticar a los japos y no son capaces de mirarse uds en un espejo y decir la verdad, (que pedazo de forro soy, ojala ubiera nacido en japon).
    Lo cierto es que a los ojos razgados todo le chupa un huevo, y se pasan por el orto los comentarios de cualquiera, al lado de ellos cualquier pais y extrangero es preihistorico, te ven como si fueses un dinosaurio, o un cavernicola, asi que en vez de cuerearlos seria bueno aprender un poco de ellos y sacarse el sombrero cuando pasan.

  89. Estoy de acuerdo con uno que dijo que se quedaba con la ultima foto; estan tremendas esas dos chicas.
    Para los que critican otras culturas solo una cosa, viajad y leed.
    Un saludo!

  90. joder, que nadie se piense que los japos van asi por la calle! aunque nos joda admitirlo, todos los jovenes vestimos como quien? como quien? alguien sabria decirlo? si, en efecto, como los norteamericanos! si os fijais en la foto de grupo de estos japos, en la famosa reunion no habia tantos, si acaso unos 50.
    me sorprende que a algunos todavia les pique el tema de Colon y los malditos espanoles que llegaron para llevarse el oro, mientras que adoran al dolar (esos de arriba si que son unos autenticos freaks). acaso prefeririais que hubieran llegado los ingleses y os redujeran a la nada y os metieran en reservas a los pocos que quedaran? las corridas de toros son de lo peor que se ha inventado, pero es que cansa ya que siempre se salga con el mismo tema. no hay otros temas por donde atacar?

  91. Pinches japoneses locos, es imprecionante el contenido kitsch de sus modas y atuendos y la facilidad que tienen para ocultar la ridiculez. !no les da pena exibir las fotos a todo el mundo!

  102. Si senor, con dos cojones, envidia cochina que tienen la mayor parte de espanoles, que lo unico que saben hacer es escarnio de aquellos que se diferencian del resto.
    Viva Japon y su naturalidad. Por muchos anos.

  103. Estos weyes dicen mucho de los Yakuza, y se burlan de los cholos mexicanos.
    Cualquier chinito pendejo de estos “Yakuza” le pela los huevos a cualquier cholo mexicano…
    Y si hablamos de organizacion, forma de vestir agresiva y actitud rebelde solamente busquen informacion acerca de la “Mara Salvatrucha”, esa si es mafia no chingaderas de estas.

  104. I heard of those guys, the “yankees”(ヤンキー).They’re the delinquent dead-end kids of Japan who show up a lot in anime and mangas(Great Teacher Onizuka, YuYu Hakusho and those Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun games).
    They dress just like above in modified school uniforms with long open coats and baggy “bontan” pants but sometimes they dress with Hawaian shirts and granny sandals and cut their hair either in a 50s style pompadour or a tall flat-top. They are believed to be armed with knives and bamboo shinais(kendo practice swords) and are responsible for muggings, brawls and gang rapes. Most yankees eventually join bosozokus(biker gangs).
    It seems that every nation has it’s own unique delinquent youth subculture. Japan has their yankees, The USA’s got their gangstas, The UK’s got their chavs, Mexico has it’s cholos and here in Puerto Rico(I’m Puerto Rican of Spanish descent BTW) we have “cacos”.
    But I have some questions Masa? Do yankees still exist in Japan? Do they dress the same as they do in those pics or have they adopted a more Americanized hip-hop fashion?
    ============From MasaManiA
    You are good analyst. thank you for your explanation. and yes we have still yankees.

  105. fuck japanese!!!!!

    Si no entiendes una mierda de lo que pone la pena te jodes.
    al fin y al cabo, yo como la mitad del planeta ha tenido que aprender varios idiomas mas que nada para poder relacionar con el otro medio, como tu, cerrados de mollera que unicamente saben escupir vocablos incoherentes (sea en el idioma que sea).
    Quedate en tu puta casa y deja ya de joder (decia el poeta castellano)

    en vez de jugar a club espanol. No hay razon de usted a la basura
    esta cuerda de rosca con su hablar privado.
    Masa: grandes cuadros, como de costumbre:)

    hello, spanish friends. The internet is a big free space, but please consider this site is in english. Masa here makes an effort to talk to the world in english. Everyone here, from different countries, speak english, as this permits to be understood. It would be the very least of politeness to confirm with this, instead of playing spanish club. There is no reason for you to trash this thread with your private talking.
    Masa: great pictures, as usual 🙂
    thank you for everything.

    THank you very much for your kind. I dont want to delete any comment but not english comment is not understandable. so I dont want to keep them. THank you for your understanding and advice to spanish people. (^-^)v

  111. Question: How do the people posting in Spanish REALLY know what the thread is about? Sure, they can look at the pictures and read other posts in Spanish, but can they read Masa’s original explanation?
    If no, then they really don’t have a clue as to what’s being said and their posts are pointless. Or they are simply saying ‘nice pictures’ over and over.
    If yes, then they are a bunch of rude bastards because they could write their comments either in English or in Spanish WITH an English translation.
    Either way, the current bunch of Spanish posts is annoying, even by my standards. I grew up in are area with just as many Spanish-speqaking people as English-speaking people. One of my best friends had to translate back and forth between her parents and myself whenever I came over for a visit-this was normal life for me.
    =============from MasaManiA
    Ok, I will delete them. thank you for your good explanation.

  112. Does anyone know whether it true that some Japanese gang members put pearls in their penises to create a heavy lump in the end of their member?
    ==============from MasaManiA
    Its true

  113. Spaniard-killer

    I hate those snull-skulled vulgar little spanish scums, they’re like worms, like plague, they’re fucking disgusting, and they’re everywhere on the net. And did I mention, they smell. What the hell is wrong with you, EURO-NIGGERS !!!! go to a spanish-speaking site and spit your shit there

  114. P.P., from what I know, it’s 1 per year in jail. It’s also supposed to give more pleasure to their girlfriend(s).
    I find body modification to be an interesting subject…

  115. I don´t think you can just tell all the spanish are rude just because some of them behave like stupids. I´m Spanish or they tell me so. In my first coment i was just trying to explain that people isn´t just whta they apeard to be but if you just think we smell i´ll think U are just another one who just enter the sites to tell other people that you and your culture are the best. why don´t you just try learning another languages?

  116. it looks cool all that, its remind me a Flock of seagulls, here in mexico are strange people too, but not like the japan people. The girls of the second and the last photo looks great.
    Por otro lado pinches espanoles, vayanse a la $%&$#%%, cuando los mexicanos van a espana nos tratan mal pero cuando vienen a mexico se creen lo maximo. (sin contar a las espanolas esas si me gustan)

  117. I don’t understand this at all. They all look so much alike down to their hairstyles and socks I can’t tell what the customizations are. What does it say on their backs and whats with everyone having that same awful hairstyle? In the US this would not be considered a fashion trend not a rebellion.
    Anyway, the costumes are incredible.

  118. A big kishidan fan here,these attire really cool in my opinion since that fashion/culture doesnt exist here.
    From the looks of the pics the fans just having fun there mimicking kishidan,i wish i was there.

  119. Thank you, masa san.Your photos help me so much to see japanese fashion tendences and Urban Tribes, thats the theme of my investigation, and with these ones I have a good hint to start.
    Sorry but Im not so good in english,(nihongo mo) I hope you understand 😛

  120. ohh i just saw the movie kamikaze girls and it had one of the main girls as a yanki (in the movie they spell it like that…) and the other in gothic lolita. i myself is into gothic lolita but since i saw the movie i wanted to have to have something of yanki look, it very intresting to me and i wanted to get some clothes to cosplay in. i dont know if the coats are something special or just a regular trench coat. all and all i want a outfit it looks badass.

  121. Yanki/BAKA(!)soku/ these guys….weak-ass, limp-dick, chickenshit motherfuckers!! The whole lot of them! The chicks are do-able though!

  122. why are they throwing up the king sighn fuck kings fuck ur gang folk love

  123. Kishidan is awesome…
    To PW: Haha, Kishidan and its fans aren’t real “Yakuza”! Kishidan play pop-rock, and their fans listen to it, and imitate their “style”. Their style of clothing is just borrowed from “punks” that think they’re “tuff”…none of the Kishidan members or its fans perform illegal activities for yakuza…
    This whole thing is just like the “punk” movement in the 70s, the safety pin through their noses and bum flaps and plaid and combat boots and super glue/sugar water in the hair to make a mowhawk…it’s a “scene”…and “punk” had a little bit of a revival, with pop-punk (aka pseudo-punk, haha) with bands like Sum 41 and Green Day. It’s just like that, some people in the 70s~80s REALLY did dress like these Kishidan people, and at the time, it WAS rebellious…I mean when they group together like this it looks like conformity but if you saw one or two people like that in your school, it’d be much more rebellious than a normal school costume! Just like the “punk” movement, it was really rebellious at the time because everything in England was very proper…just like the whole “grunge” thing to rebel against the clean-cut preppies…although things turn into fads very quickly, in the beginning there’s always a reason for things…
    You can call the Japanese stupid for this, but remember, this is just a small handful of extreme people…a lot of Japanese people would also laugh and ridicule this behaviour! Just like many Americans find it ridiculous that some of their peers would dress up in Darth Vadar costumes and camp outside the stadium a day before Star Wars conventions…
    I think the lesson to learn from this is don’t be so quick to judge, everyone is different but that doesn’t make them “stupid”. You never know, some of these “stupid” people might be extremely nice and intelligent!

  124. Are those gangs bousouzuko or are they different from bousouzuko?
    ==============from MasaManiA
    bousouzoku is bike gang

  125. Travwell,
    Super glue and sugar water? Try egg whites and hairspray. Nowadays, you can use hair wax, too.

  126. The long Kimono and otoko no kimono robes are very beautiful, I think. I wish I saw this when I was in Tokyo, I definately would have obtained some!!! Or at least tried. I am gonna send this page to my friend in Yokohama, maybe he can get some for me, the reds & whites r the best to me.
    Georgous!

  127. Hey Masa you should do your next update about bosozoku or yakuza.

  128. can you help me?
    im doing a project on tokyo street fashion and i need help finding out some info

  129. k os jodan hombre … el ingles a tomar x culo xaval … el espanol se comera el ingles cuando los hispanos conkistemos USA … asike todo el mundo palla y menos intles y mas ASTURIANU FILLOS DE PUTA !!!

  130. I have been searching all over for those jackets (the kamikazejackets) if u know where to find them I would be grateful (plz plz)if youd let me know also if you know the actual name of that type of jacket
    ==============From MasaManiA
    It’s just a school uniform called, “Gakuran”. but in case of gad student, they wear deformed uniform. it’s kind of Japanese out law tradition. you can get it in Japan.

  131. Hi Masa,
    I’ve enjoyed looking through the other cosplay groups you’ve photographed.. but for some reason I find these Kishidan fans look ridiculous! I’m all for Japanese fashion but do they really think they’re cool ?
    What is your fashion style Masa?
    Keep up the good work~
    L

  132. I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE TO BE YANKEE, THERE IS A YOUTH EXPRESION FOR FREEDOM…………YANKEE 4EVER

  133. i have to say people are making me very, very sad. you’re all taking this far too seriously.
    kishidan is just about the most talented and awesome band i’ve ever seen, and their cosplayers kick more ass that most of the other cosplayers i’ve ever seen, weither for anime or for other japanese bands. the 6 members of kishidan have more enthusiasm, soul, and love for what they do than can be imagined, or even fully comprehended at any one time.
    all you people need to mellow out~~seriously, just because they look a bit bizarre doesn’t mean anything.
    the vocalist of kishidan was a bakusozoku when he was in high school, so he knows what he’s doing. the look of kishidan is an over-exagerated version of what he looked like in school, and their music, videos, and concerts reflect that same style.
    they’re wacky, they’re fun, they’re rediculous, they’re passionate, they’re incredable hard-workers, and they have immense talent.
    honestly, all these people in these photos are dressing like that because it’s FUN. that’s why they do what they do, that’s why kishidan does what they do~~it’s FUN.
    and as for the hand signal a bunch of people are doing, it’s a dog. it’s a thing kishidan does, nabbed from an old manga series from the 80’s called “Yoroshiku, Mecha-Dog.” the hand sign is a dog, and they wag their little finger like the dog’s mouth and say, “wan wan” which is the sound of a dog barking.
    and as for what’s written on the backs of their jackets, mostly is the name of the band, “kishidan.”
    THERE, people, THERE~~this is a BAND. they are MUCISIANS. they are not political activists, they are not rebels. they’re 6 guys in a BAND.
    …there, i think i’ve ranted enough on behalf of kishidan. XDD sorry everyone, i just really don’t like people being mean about japanese people, and i don’t like people being mean about kishidan. there is alot to love there.
    YOROSHIKU, MECHA-DOG~! WAN WAN~!

  134. i agree with masayuki. kishidan is an amazing group. they have more energy and enthusiaism then pretty much any other group ive seen.
    and the cosplayers are awesome. i would love to have one of those jackets ^____^

  135. HA! I’m curently watching the “Kisarasu Cat’s Eye” J-Drama and I just saw Kishidan on there. They sound pretty good and I’m trying to figure out what songs they sang on Episode 7.

  136. YO MAN FUCK UR SCHOOL GANGS LOOK LIKE A BUNCH A FAGS MAN FUCK UR YAKUZA SHIT TO MAN ITS ALL BOUT CHI TOWN GANGS MAN THE FOLKS TWO SIX TGANGSTER DISCIPLES IMPERIAL GANGSTERS ALLMIGHTY AMBROSE THOSE THE REAL GANGS UR GANGS AINT SHIT ESPECIALLY THOSE YAKUZA BITCHES

  137. Hey Masa! It’s my first comment here, but I see your photos always… they are really nice, and shows us ppl in japan, they are other culture, other life… I love the way that japanese face the life… how they see their country. I whish I could travel to japan, I want to see it >__<
    And I have to thank you your work, you put pictures of the normal life there, and explains it,it’s ahard and great job. You’re doing well!! Keep on going!!
    I have to say tht I’m spanish, and I’m embarrased with some of their posts….. But also I have to say that some comments of english-talkers are crap….. And I could say sorry about some comments of stupid spanish fools, I know them better than anyone on this site, and I can say how stupid they are, but other ppl, from other countries doesn’t know anything from spain, and they dont want to, and it’s really sad… the see us , the spanish ppl like animals… and the real animals are around them…
    I have to say that i’m a spanish fan of kishidan, and other japanese bands, like i’m fan of bands of the whole world… and if some ppl read more, and disturb less, they could be better. I only have to say that the “garrulos” of spain, may stay in silence… because they talk about things they dont know. But the fools of america, or other countries, stay quiet too, they don’t have to show us how they spilt at their keybord….
    Nothing less to say, Masa, thanks for try to reading me… my english is….. bad, I know. Im trying hard like you n_n I think you understand.
    And this is for the spanish people:
    Y esto para los espanoles: Panda de mongolos, priemro informaros, y dejad de decir que estos japos tal y cual, porque seguro que en vuestras casas teneis cosas mejores que hacer y de las que preocuparos de lo que hacen una panda de japoneses en un parque un domingo, que es mejor que ponerse hasta el culo de pastillas en el radikal todos los viernes. Leed mas y hablad menos, y para decir lo tontos que son los japos, miraos vosotros. No hay peor critico que uno mismo.
    Thanks Masa

  138. yeah… those hair do’s remind me of the old what was it 1940’s 50’s?

  139. Muffin Inflator

    I scanned the previous posts, and I’m not sure if this was touched upon, but I’d like to bring light to the squat:
    Asian bathrooms used to have only a specific kind of toilet which was, essentially, a hole in the ground. To use this ‘toilet’, one had to learn to squat over it and A) not fall in, and B) go to the bathroom while not falling in. Since this was the only toilet available, everyone learned to squat in that fashion.
    The introduction of the European toilet (the common ‘sit-down’ toilet) happened largely in about the 20th century (I think), and when it first became popular, only the upper class had access to it. Therefor, the general population, comprised mostly of lower class, still had to use the squat toilets (there’s a proper name for them, but I don’t remember it), and, thus, a lot of people still were comfortable squatting.
    I used to live in Singapore for 10 years, and before I left there were still some bathrooms that would have the squat toilets. And I’m talking about in a shopping mall on different floors. I’m a guy, so walking into a bathroom I could see A) either 3 or so urinals or one big urinal ‘wall’, B) 4 or so stalls with European toilets in them, and C) 2 or so stalls with porcelain ‘squat pots’ equipped with a water tank so you can flush it.
    Less developed countries will still have the old squat pots, which were porcelain, but to flush it you had to pour a bucket or two of water down it yourself.
    I guess in Japan, where the European toilet underwent a massive facelift, the ‘squat pot’ became even more obsolete. I’m surprised how that squat became synonymous with ‘yankees’, though. I’m Chinese, and all my Asian friends call it the “Asian Squat”.
    I hope that was helpful.

  140. I like them all and want to play with them in their funky clothes…are they really yakuza? must be fun

  141. that hair kinda reminds me of Elvis Presley lol

  142. I’ve recently come back from visiting Japan – Kishidan are so cool! At first I thought they were weird…but their style is unique 🙂
